- The study provided evidence that the triage scoring metric is a strong predictor of subsequent service use. Of the 10 outcomes examined, the associations with the triage total score were in the expected directions for all outcomes and were statistically significant for the majority (6 of 10) of outcomes. Having a higher triage total score was associated with receiving outpatient mental health treatment, receiving outpatient substance abuse treatment, visiting an emergency room, being hospitalized, using an ambulance, and spending time in a detox center.
- Compared with the total score, triage component scores were less predictive of service use across the full range of outcomes but were strong predictors for specific outcomes.
